Students at the Isle campus of the College of West Anglia in Wisbech have put their best foot forward for charity.
A group of young people from the Developing Work Skills course took part in a sponsored walk to raise £80 for their four chosen charities Whizz Kids, Riding for Disabled, MacMillan and a local care home opposite the college, Orchard House.
Developing Work Skills helps the students understand what is required in preparation for joining a company.
Whizz Kids is a charity that helps children and families buy equipment to make their life easier, such as specially adapted wheelchairs or sporty wheelchairs to make them feel more in control of their lives and less reliant on carers.
The students walked from the college into Wisbech town centre and around the town collecting donations as well as sponsorship.

The students will continue to raise funds and have two business projects that will start after Christmas which they have allocated job roles to each other for.
One is a car wash for staff and students and the other is a cartoon comic strip that they will sell based on themselves as superheroes. There are 12 students in the group.
